Not sure if it is just me but since the last main site upgrade when I try to access a LudeGeneration thread from Google, it takes me to the site but then says "thread cannot be found" or something similar. If i use LudeGen's search tool I can find the thread (sometimes, I'm not that good) and it shows up perfectly. It's not that the post/thread isn't there, but the site "can't find" it when opening it from Google.
Happens with any search option that I try to access.

Cheers guys.

EDIT: It says "The requested page cannot be found" and playing around I have found that some pages do work, others give the error message.

I think it's because they changed the hosting of the site a few months back and were not able migrate all the posts across. So Google is still remembering posts that used to be there.

It's unavoidable sadly, the way the old site structured links isn't the same as the new one. The posts are there, but the links won't click through from Google :(

Eventually the google indexing will catch up, until then we have this issue.
